Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

So Good

I felt like a four year-old on Christmas morning yesterday…way too much stimulation.  I spent the entire day watching the news, well into the 7pm hour.  Then I added to the list the Red Sox game and the Bruins game and my head was spinning happily for quite a few hours.

Yesterday’s Sox game played like we want every Red Sox game to play.  Clay Buchholz with his first “quality start”of the season, giving us fits when they showed him every half inning staring at his hand (“Is it a blister?  Does he have a cramp?”  What’s wrong with him???”) but still pitching well.  Dustin Pedroia with an epic at bat against one of the best pitchers in the American League.  David Ortiz with a home run and Jacoby Ellsbury with a stolen base. A pile of of runs in the seventh inning followed by the relievers giving us a reason to pay attention to a blow out game. Carl Crawford showing us that May might be his month with his second consecutive multiple-hit game.  This was a damn fun game.

I’ll be at Fenway tonight with friends enjoying the team and the company. Getting to see them in the midst of a really exciting stretch is icing.

  1. Was a really good game. I feel like the season has finally begun!

  2. Two sweet games in a row here. I’m still grinning over the memory of Pedey, Papi, Gonzo, and Darnell pounding Carl Crawford with brotherly abandon after his walkoff single in the previous day’s game. Now I’m grinning all day with these two images keeping me happy: Pedey lacing one up the middle for the game-changing 2 RBIs after fouling off approximately 1,021 pitches, and Papi first shaking hands, then giving a hug to, a serviceman in uniform along the first-base line after coming home with his 2 run dinger. Very dear. Go Sox!
